James Carville has some advice for Tiger Woods: 'Shut up.'

The political consultant, who has helped deal with the fallout from sex scandals of his own bosses, said Tiger should lay low and avoid any media stunts.

"Don't go into rehab," Carville said on Dan Patrick's radio show today. "Don't go on Dr. Phil or any of that."

Instead, Carville said Tiger's message should be simple: "I'm going to concentrate on being a better golfer and a better person, and I'll see you on the links. Goodbye."

There's no use in Tiger trying to restore his image, Carville said, because "his image is gone."
